Milton and the Manuscript of De Doctrina Christiana
OUP Oxford, Nov 8, 2007 - Literary Criticism - 194 pages
Debate about the authorship of the manuscript known to us as De Doctrina Christiana has bedevilled Milton studies over recent years. In this book four leading scholars give an account of the research project that demonstrated its Miltonic provenance beyond reasonable doubt. But the authors do much more besides, locating Milton's systematic theology in its broader European context, picking open the stages and processes of its composition, and analysing itsLatinity.
